Van der Weide leaves Dutch giant to join consulting firm ERM

Tim van der Weide, Advisor Responsible Investment at PGGM Investments, is leaving after seven years at the Dutch giant to join sustainability consulting firm ERM.

Hailing his “beautiful time” at the RI team at the Zeist-based organization, he said he would continue to work in the field of responsible investment for Environmental Resources Management (ERM), a leading sustainability/ESG consultancy.

ERM provides environmental, health, safety, risk, social consulting services and sustainability related services, with more than 150 offices in over 40 countries and more than 5,000 staff.

His role at PGGM was to advise its investment managers on the integration of material environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) in their investment decisions and advising on thematic ESG investments.He was involved with private equity, infrastructure, hedge funds and private real estate. He starts his new role on September 1.

He is available for the time being via his personal email address – tim@setsail.nl. He has a personal website here.

Van der Weide, a co-owner of a bike shop in Amsterdam, joined PGGM in 2008, initially in a business development role before later moving into responsible investment.

Before that he had stints at Fortis Merchant Bank, Achmea and Rabobank.

PGGM, with €188bn in assets under management, was most recently in the news for its stance on bringing the remuneration of external asset managers in line with the interests of their pension fund clients.
